  4. You said a "hook" on the frame? And turn the derailleur up so it doesn't the screw hit the back of the frame. What the heck are you talking about ? I have a Honda 21 spd, and my frame doesn't have a frame "hook" It has a round hole.the size of the screw. A close up of the frame and derailleur may help. You talk to fast ! I don't know anything I didn't know before this video. Please explain it in lay man's terms.

  5. here it is verbatum; "make sure the screw is on top of the "hook" on top of the "drop out". You lost me there. Can you show a close-up of the "hook" and "drop-out" and point to them ? Can't make them out even in full screen. I don't know what they are or look like. My Honda Derailleur looks different from yours. Please note, I knew nothing about all this.

  6. This was useless! Go ahead and finish the dang install…. put on the chain, adjust the cable and gears.
